Desktop Font Software License Agreement
This License Agreement is a legal contract between you and Talbot Type. When you purchase a font, you are purchasing the right to use that font under a particular set of conditions. These conditions range from, for example, how many computers the font can be installed on to whether it can be embedded in digital documents. It is important that you read and understand this Agreement because it defines your rights, the acceptable uses of Talbot Type Fonts, and the rights Talbot Type reserves. If you believe your usage or need is not addressed, or if you are unsure of any section’s meaning, please ask Talbot Type before you make a purchase.
Once you download and/or install and/or use the Talbot Type Fonts, you are confirming you understand and agree to the terms of this Agreement, and that you have the authority to bind the person or entity specified on your sales receipt to the terms of this Agreement. Upon payment in full, Talbot Type grants to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use Talbot Type Fonts under the following terms and conditions.
In this Agreement, “Font”, “Fonts” or “Font Software” have identical meanings and are defined as the designs of the Fonts and the software that produces a typeface design(s) together with any other artworks that may be associated with the Font.
“You”, “Your” and the “End User” are defined as and refer to a customer who has purchased a license to use the Font. An End User is not defined as a distributor, reseller, dealer, sub-licensee, original equipment manufacturer (“OEM”), or other wholesale buyer, etc. Talbot Type products may not be distributed and/or sold to third parties without prior written consent from Talbot Type.
“Output Device” is defined as any device producing a usable representation of the Font, such as, but not limited to: a printer, image setter, laser setter, plate maker.
2. Permitted Uses and Restrictions

For example, the purchase of a single license allows for the installation and use of the Font on up to and including five (5) computers. Please refer to your sales receipt for the amount of installations permitted.
The Font Software may be installed and used at a single geographic location. If you need a license that permits installation of the Font Software at multiple locations, please contact Talbot Type.
The Font Software may be installed and used on a laptop as a secondary and alternate use computer.

2.5 Output Devices
The Font Software may be used with a maximum of five (5) output devices per licensed computer. However, the Font Software may not be installed or used with any device that displays a reproduction or facsimile of the Font Software or the designs embodied in the Font Software. This includes, but is not limited to: game playing devices, game of chance devices, mp3 players, electronic books, or mobile phones or other mobile devices. All such uses are not permitted installations and are not authorised output devices/uses under this License. Any such installation or use requires the purchase of a special license.

You may make a reasonable number of copies of the Font Software for back-up purposes only. Any copies must contain the same documentation, copyright, trademark, and other proprietary notices that appear on, in or with the Fonts.

Embedding of the Fonts into web pages or digital documents is permitted only in a secured, read-only mode. You must ensure that recipients of such web pages or documents cannot extract, install or use the embedded Fonts. The creation of new documents using an embedded copy of the Font Software is expressly prohibited. You further agree not to change or alter the embedding bits or other restrictions of the embedding programs within the Font Software itself.
You may create outline artworks based upon the Font Software for your personal or business use. However, the use of any font creation or font manipulation program or any attempt to modify the Font for the purposes of creating a usable or substitute version of the Font is prohibited. Under no circumstances may you modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, alter, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Font Software. Any modifications made to the vector outlines shall be considered derivative works and their use governed by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You further agree not to commission or authorise any third party to undertake modifications to the Fonts without prior written consent from Talbot Type.
2.9 Restriction as Goods for Sale
This License expressly prohibits the use of the Font Software in the creation of alphabet products, such as, but not limited to: house numbers, stamp sets, rub-on letters, adhesive alphabet letters, alphabet punch and die sets or other methods for use in making such products.

Talbot Type expressly reserves the right to amend or modify subsequent versions of this License Agreement at any time and without prior notification.
8. Happily ever after
Well done if you've read all of the above, which can appear intimidating and complicated in places. So may I take the opportunity to state that, I consider myself to be an entirely reasonable person, and will endeavour to act reasonably at all times.
